I have a really exciting post for today! I recently picked up a bunch of the Milani Color Statement Lipsticks when they were 30% off and I thought I’d share which ones I picked. I already love these. The formula is so creamy and pigmented, there wasn’t a ‘dud’ out of any I chose. They also stain your lips, so it’s great for staying power. Even after applying all 13 and wiping them off my lips aren’t the least bit dry so I know these won’t be drying. You really can’t get better than that for $5.49 full price.
I tried to do these in order from lightest to darkest so that the staining wouldn’t be a huge issue. I will say that the photos don’t do these justice, they are even more beautiful in person! I will definitely be experimenting with more shades of these.
Nude Creme is like a brown-pink nude shade. It looks more brown in the tube than on my lips, but it is a really flattering nude shade for my skin tone. It’s darker than some of the other nudes I have, which is a nice change. The best way I can describe this is a ‘my lips but better shade’.
This shade is also a nude but it’s rose toned and deeper than the last. It comes off much pinker on me than it looks in the tube. In the tube it comes off with a stronger brown undertone.
This shade is starting to move away from the nude shades and is a deeper rose shade.
This is a really bright rose pink shade. I really like this one! It does come across brighter on than it looks in the tube, but I enjoy bright colours, so this was a happy surprise.
This is a really pretty pinky-coral shade. It’s just bright enough, but not too bright. I think this is a great shade because the pink mixed with the coral makes it more versatile.
This is a true pink shade. It’s pretty cool toned and bright. I think this is perfect for my fair skin, I can see it looking really light or sort of frosty with a tan.
This shade is hot pink and coral mixed. I think this shade is so pretty and would look amazing with a tan. This is a perfect summer shade.
This is a true fuchsia. It has a shinier finish than the cream finishes which just makes your lips look so luscious!
This is orange…very orange! If you want to rock a bright orange lip, this is it! Despite how bright this is, I love it! It doesn’t make my teeth look yellow and it compliments my hair colour.
This is the one red shade I picked up. It’s not a full red as it does have some orange undertones. If you like reds, this is a great one to add to your collection. I did find this one kind of hard to apply, it’s really obvious when you mess up. That explains the messy application. I did pick up a few lip liners and I got one to go with this and I would definitely use it.
Hot Pink Rage
I don’t know about anyone else, but I think the name of this is off. It doesn’t scream hot pink to me. It’s pretty, but not hot pink. It’s more medium. A great shade for someone easing their way into brighter lipsticks.
This a violet shade, but it’s deeper and softer with some mauve undertones. A great shade to subtly wear purple as it has pink undertones. It is much more mauve in person.
The last and darkest shade I picked up is Sangria. This is a deep berry shade. This colour is kind of vampy and I can see it being my fall go-to. This does appear darker in the tube and although I think this is more wearable, I wouldn’t have minded it darker!
There you have it, my Milani lipstick collection! These are awesome and worth way more than their price, I’m really glad I picked these up. Let me know in the comments which one(s) you like the best! If you want to see any of these in a tutorial, you can leave that in the comments as well 🙂
Bye for now!
